My daughter loves split peas. She fixed a big batch of split pea soup in the crock pot yesterday. It has the peas, carrots, onions and cut up bites of ham. Today is the second day and it is better than it was yesterday. Mmm. Tasty. Did you know they contain fiber, vitamin c, folate and over half of the amount of vitamin a a man or woman need in their daily diets? It does have a lot of sodium in it however, so have to be careful not to over do it. Are you a fan of split pea soup?

@Jessicalynnt ...Some are better than others. I would have liked more onions in mine. And the ham we used this time was extra salty which I don't care for. But it was tasty and we hadn't had it for a while.

It looks very wholesome, but I don't need the excess sodium.

@Hatley ...Just not use as much and make sure the ham or whatever is in it doesn't have a lot of salt in it.

It is filling. That's why I like it in the winter. Warms the little coggles.

It is one of my favorite soups. When we have a ham i look forward to using the bone as the base for the soup.

That's a good idea. We usually put a ham hock in it. This was just a quick soup day.

I grew up on my mom's split pea soup, and I make it occasionally, but my kids won't touch it.

That's too bad. Sound like normal kids. That must be why a lot of people who answered this haven't had for a long time. LOL

When I was a kid, I hated anything with any kind of peas. Now I like it, but I prefer white bean soup.
